Main Phone 9666 Dr. Logan's Wife XXXTV lunged toward the desk, and in the instant that vjota jsprnng back against the wall, (Peter felt his outstretched arm [hugged (irmly against Pellclier's ichesL. Braked less by Pelletier's [restraininj; weight than by the sheer comfort of contact, Peter relaxed slightly. "You are a faker, Cola," he slid, letting his arm drop. "You haven't got a thing on me and you know iL Exaclly what should I come clean about? Come on, say it, Dr. Pellelicr's »• big man, he can lake it Arid frankly, I'm curious, too." Cota shrugged. "Surely you don't need me to tell yoi about yourself," he said with a confidence that shook both men. "Matter of fact, I don't think the FBI needed my assistance either. They have access lo the Washington files . . ." -Washington files?" Peter ••hocd, ™Cota Cota J3t flown at lii* deffc, moved a few papers, looked up. He addressed Dr. Pclletier. "1 see no reason for detaining you further, Doctor. 1 have nothing more to say, and I have a great deal >f work to do. The hospital doesn't run itself, you know. The prob- 'lein of Dr. Surinov's loyally is in ^uch more competent hands than ;my own. I am not responsible for 'his pas( nor am 1 interested in his future. Good day, please, gentlemen.'' ' Peter's l'-s rlnmr^d like a ' :ung trap. He felt Waller's • •• and met it, expecting to! tncre commiseration at the ruccness of the dismissal. Instead, he saw worried questioning. He turned and walked out of the oBicc. Walter's Triers !' " ! on his arm. "Peter, is there something you should have told me before?" He shook his head dispiritedly. "1 don't know, Waltet." "Come to the office for a minute. We can talk there," followed Dr. Pelletier through the back entrance into the consultation room. He sank into a chair, absently flexed his fingers, made a fist, scrubbed the knuckles that had been held back from the superintendent's person. The mining's expenditure of emotion had bought him nothing but a soggy sense of defeat. He said, "I suppose you have to be innocent to feel this guilty. It might even he safer to be guilty _ at least jou'd know when to throw your frtiard up." Walter lit a cigarette, sat swiveJ- ing in the desk chair. "What could he mean?" Peter went on, frowning. "The Civil Liberties Onion? That's not on the subversive list The N.A.A C P _ that's still okay as far as I know Washington ales, the man says When I was in college 1 remember I sent $25 which was my entire bank account at the lime to some Spanish Loyalist outfit. Maybe that puts me in the drawer marked 'premature anti-Fascist'. Do you suppose Cota could have tracked me that far bark?" Waller smiled then "I! it's thai vague, then forget iL Cola had me worried there for a while. Listen, even if there's some organization you joined that's">»w verboten. they may discount it. Same thing happened to me. I had to be cleared on this thing too. you know. I'd have sworn they ^oiild finecomb my past and not come up with so much as a flake of dandruff.

She thought it ^a* for Russian children's relief but we looked it up on the attorney general's list, and there it is a subversive outfit, a front. Can you imagine that? I tossed plenty don't think I didn't But if they d track it down my record must lave outweighed it." "It's a joke," Peter r-'\ *--v-ling. "The country is screaming for scientists but it won't let them in the laboratories to work. We're the most valued and most distrusted men in the country today. How can the government expect young men of intelligence and integrity to come inlo a profession where they're treated like criminals. You're not even granted a criminal's right of selZ-defeiise." * • * l J 1 rfE door opened i few Inches and the secretary talked through the aperture. "Dr. Pelle- ticr. the patients are standing all the way into the hall. Will you be free to see them soon?" "Right away, my dear. HigM away. I'll buzz you." Peter got up. "I'm sorry, Walter." "If he's tryinff to frame TOII, rn tell you right now he won't EM away with it" Peter made no ans'.vcr. Walter stood up, put o\rt his hand. "Keep me posted Peter " "Yup." And then, }oath to Tct refer go Pelletier followed him ttirough the back door, flung his arm across his slouched shoulders. "Peter, you're young and you're angry. I'm too old to be an angry man. Bui I beg you to sit tight for a while. As long as your conscience is clear, I'm not worried. Sit tight The slakes are worth it. You may hav« the recipe for the antidote to atomic bombing—remember that. You may he the one to find the security the world Is looking for. Let's hope the government won't bar you from thai chance. It's a paradoxical situation, but there it Is." Flaring trouble with yonr camera? Then bring It to Barney's Drug. We're equipped to fix alt kinds of cameras . . . from Brownies to Lelcas.
